    in a family with white parents, an AA sister, 2 white siblings. He is lucky in that my daughter found a school with a good amount of racial diversity, which sadly was not easy to find.
    I agree it's good that he's not so concerned, he has friends of all races and seems equally comfortable with all of them.
    If people ask him about his heritage, he will tell them that his birth mom was white and his birth father was black, but if he's checking off a box on a school application, he checks the AA box, not whatever they're using as a mixed race category. And it's his choice to do that.

    Ironically, although I used to hear so much about mixed race kids not fitting in anywhere,  the kids I know seem to fit in everywhere, at least so far. The world is changing, and kids are always ahead of the curve.
